Connect was delighted to welcome actress Lynda Bellingham to our drop-in session this week.

Lynda offered her support to Connect as part of aphasia awareness month in June, and popped into our London centre to meet some of our regulars.

Having appeared on our television screens for 30 years, Lynda has starred in a number of popular television series' such as 'All Creatures Great and Small' and 'At Home with the Braithwaites'.

Through a friend Lynda is well aware of the effect aphasia has on people's lives, and was thrilled to find out more about what we do. She told us 'Connect really is a terrific organisation which recognises that people with aphasia are the experts'.
